Better to be ridden from high to low elevation, even though it is a two-way trail

Nice loop for early intermediates. Trail conditions were excellent considering recent rain.

Trail Heath Run
There is a pirated trail coming of on the start of it which is very steep and fun to ride down but Heath run is pretty mellow and I mainly use it to get to other places in the ridge

Trail Hidey Ho
Loose dirt but really fun to skid around. There’s a couple of drops and rock gardens at the start but turns into uphill towards the end
